Cultural Crossing and the Diversity Council welcome Damon Williams, Ph.D.
Dr. Williams is one of the nation’s foremost authorities on diversity, inclusion, the Centennial Generation, and organizational change. Part of his Inclusive Excellence Campaign to spark meaningful change efforts at 5000 organizations, the keynote session "Crossing Borders to Innovate Possibility: Forging a 21st Century Diversity & Inclusion Agenda” will explore why there is so much talk about change and so little results, the power of our nation’s most diverse generation, the Centennials (born after 1997), and define the key strategies and techniques required to transform our institutions and empower a new generation of border crossing leaders, fully ready to lead in the 21st century. Part motivational speech, part personal narrative, and full of evidence-based practices and strategies—audiences will leave empowered and prepared with new tools to drive diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in their organizations and lives.
